Dunkirk Primary School

Dunkirk Primary School

Community Cohesion & Equality

The school aims to:

  • be an inclusive school which provides a welcoming atmosphere for children and adults, where every child is valued and where everyone can experience and make positive relationships
  • offer all pupils an understanding of what prejudice means and how it occurs and enable them to challenge and deal effectively with all forms of discrimination
  • enable all children to achieve the highest standards of attainment and progress within the school's ethos of a total commitment to the practice and principles of equal opportunities

Each year Dunkirk Primary School reviews its provision for promoting equality of opportunity.

This year's review has shown that Dunkirk’s provision is very good and all people from the protected groups mentioned in the Equality Act 2010 have their needs met very well. Each year we will highlight certain areas that can be developed even further.

This year one focus will be on boy’s achievement. This has been identified through our tracking system. Another focus will be on promoting better relationships between people within the parent/adult community who have different religions or beliefs. This has been identified through observation and discussion with different members of the community.

Equality Objectives

Each year Dunkirk Primary School reviews its provision for promoting equality of opportunity.

This year one focus will be on pupils with EAL (English as an additional Language) achievement. This has been identified through the Raise tracking system. Our increasing numbers of EAL pupils, their changing socio-economic situation, high levels of mobility, expansion of teaching staff and data dip have led to this becoming a key priority.

Our other focus is to ensure Dunkirk’s school ethos promotes fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. All pupils, staff and members of our school community will be encouraged to respect other people, with particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010.

Therefore, our school’s current equality objectives 2016-2018 are:

  • EAL: To ensure that all pupils with EAL make at least expected progress across the whole school.

 

  • British Values: To ensure Dunkirk’s school ethos promotes fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs.
